More than 250 Oklahoma animal shelter and rescue professionals and volunteers will receive free training and resources from the Humane Society of the United States on a number of topics.

The trainings kick-off the second year of the Humane Oklahoma program and will be held June 20 through June 23. Experts from The HSUS will present information on fundraising, humane animal care, shelter data reporting. Experts will also discuss bonding and forfeiture regarding animals held in animal cruelty cases.

This training series follows several training weeks in 2016 that focused on investigating animal cruelty, including puppy mills and animal fighting, compassion fatigue, disaster preparedness and more. More than 1,500 law enforcement, animal sheltering and rescue group professionals throughout the state attended those trainings.

Cynthia Armstrong, Oklahoma senior state director for the HSUS, said: “We are very pleased to present these classes to the animal sheltering and rescue field in Oklahoma. Well-trained professionals and volunteers are critical to saving lives and creating a humane community for animals and people.”

For this effort, the HSUS is partnering with the Humane Society of Tulsa, HEART of Oklahoma, Oklahoma Alliance for Animals and Tomahawk Live Trap.
